We are most vulnerable at times of illness. Proper psychiatric care is a powerful tool to assist us to regain our health at such times. Unfortunately, misunderstanding and stigma prevent many from seeking help at the time they need it most. It is my hope that both this website and my Cleveland psychiatry practice can provide clarity on your journey of reestablishing the health of mind and body.
Psychiatric medicine specializes in the treatment of disorders of anxiety, mood, attention (such as adult ADD and adult ADHD), and thought. These are conditions that arise from the interaction between brain disorders and environmental stressors, with symptoms surfacing in many ways such as pain associated with fibromyalgia. Advancing studies of these disorders result in effective therapies that give us reasons to hope that suffering from a condition will be treatable.
If therapy with medication is considered an option, the choices are explained carefully and any side effects both for short and long term treatment are reviewed together. I understand that medical care and medication are costly and will make every effort to provide the most effective and noninvasive therapies to my patients that will lead to an improved quality of life.
Follow-up visits are essential to assess the progress and potential side effects of therapies. I also believe in self-help groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous, Emotions Anonymous, and other programs that have a proven record of helping my patients.
